Ghana: Take drastic measures to restrict goods imports — NPP’s Paul Amaning

Paul Amaning, a member of the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) communications team, has urged the government to take drastic measures to curb the importation of goods into foreign shops.

According to him, this has also contributed to the destabilization of the Ghana cedi, and thus such a move will aid in the recovery of the economy.

He stated on Movement TV that this is also possible if the government prioritizes the production of local goods. Because many of the products are manufactured in Ghana, importers will have no choice but to purchase them in Ghana and halt importation.

“If we don’t take care, in the next five years people will have to depend on human meat for survival because the unemployment rate will increase. Sadly, most of the current unemployed youths are interested in white-collar jobs or security services. So which people should be producing for us? GUTA is an institution being fully sponsored by foreigners and that is why they are in tango with the Government on many decisions that frown on the importation,” he said.

“Today, a dollar is selling at GH¢11 . How did we get here? This is what happens when we are making importation of 13 billion. Yet, these same products which are imported can be produced here in Ghana. But we prefer to travel to China to buy them,” he added.

He pleaded with Ghanaians to rise up against the GUTA’s opposition to the government’s decisions, and he also urged the government not to allow the GUTA to do what it wants because it fears losing power, or else it will open the floodgates for everyone to do whatever they want.
